Love Islands Zara McDermott says contestants know when they are about to receive a text

Zara McDermott has revealed that Love Island stars are told they will be receiving a text by producers before their phones buzz.

The 25 year old spoke to her boyfriend Sam Thompson, 29, in a TikTok video, where he asked her about Islanders getting text messages in the villa.

Made In Chelsea star Sam asked Zara – who starred on the show in 2018 – "Are you told you have to say, 'I've got a text!' because everybody says it, or is it just the done thing?"

Zara replied: "Just the done thing," before Sam, who recently claimed he had "worked out" how Gemma Owen was being kept on the show, asked his second question.

"Do you know that you're about to get a text because they've all got phones in their hands? They're not just holding them all day."

Zara grinned: "Well I think you just answered the question," to which Sam responded: "So you do get told? Do they go, 'Guys, sit on that bed, you're going to get a text?'"

Zara clarified: "No, but they would be like, 'Maybe you should all have your phones near you'."

Zara recently shared a theory which she claims tells which Island is going to be the next dumped from the show.

During Tuesday night's episode – which saw Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna sent packing – Zara told Sam during an Instagram story that contestants are told where to stand during a dumping.

An excitable Sam, then quizzed his girlfriend demanding to know if she already knew who was going.

He said: "What do you mean? Does that mean you know who's going to go?"

Zara responded: "Looking back now I'm like, 'Oh, I get why…'

"I normally have an indication," she admitted. "I don't feel like you'd ever stand a vulnerable islander next to one who's not vulnerable."

When Zara left the villa, she was stood next to the series' eventual winners Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer.

Sam told his fans: "So you knew you were going because you knew they were good.

"So anyone stood next to someone…anyone next to Gemma basically, they're going. What an insight!"
